Implementing Sustainability Initiatives: Lessons from Kimpton Hotels

May 4, 2:15 PM

Kimpton Hotels is a San Francisco-based hotel chain with 42 boutique hotels across the United States. In 2005 Kimpton launched EarthCare, a major environmental sustainability program. Two years down the road, EarthCare has proven very successful, both in terms of its environmental and business benefits. Conceiving and launching a sustainability vision or program, however, is only the beginning of a long and rewarding journey. Creating a supportive organizational culture and managing the implementation of such programs is a complex process.

This workshop explores the process used to implement and institutionalize EarthCare and the lessons learned. Presenters will offer a conceptual roadmap of the steps required to successfully implement sustainable business programs.
